Monday Monday

Its nights like last night that remind me of how lucky we are to have such a great sleeper.  I thinking more teeth are on their way in and Grey is just not himself.  He isn't eating great and didn't go to bed til 9 last night.  Typically he is out no later than 7:30.  He was up in the middle of the night from 3:30 til about 4:15 and woke up an hour early at 6:15!  Poor guy!  He has his two bottom teeth, a tooth to the left of his two front teeth, and now the bottom left one is about to break through.  

He was happy as a clam this morning.  Mornings are my favorite time with Grey baby...he is just so docile and happy.  

Happy Monday!

Visit with Cousins

Sky had to work this weekend so Grey and I had some QT together.  He has some more teeth coming in so he isn't napping well or eating that great...but I still enjoy every second with him.  My cousin Michael and his wife and two girls unexpectedly came to Columbus Sunday afternoon, so they stopped by.  Grey loved watching the girls running all over the place...They are a lil over 3 and 16 months!  I tried to get pix of all of them together, but no one would sit still long enough!  LOL
Grey and Abigail checkin each other out!  
Just chillin in my sweats!
Sleeping with Daddy...Daddy worked more than 24 hours straight so he was pooped!

Mimi and Rascal Flatts

Danielle, my mom and I had a great time at the Rascal Flatts show.  They played just about every one of their hits.  I expected them to play more from their new album...they only played one song!  You forget how many hits they had.  They were celebrating 10 years together...and they put on a great show.  My phone died, so I only got one pic of my mom and sis!

So when we were at Danielle's Thursday night, the smoke alarm went off.  Grey reallllly enjoyed that...can you tell????  LOL

Mimi & Grey

Think Grey was done with pix!

Crawling with Mimi

Mimi played with Grey all day...it's amazing how much he has changed in the 3 1/2 weeks since she's seen him last.  He is nonstop now...she just couldn't get over how he never sits still!  Our big boy has been on the verge of crawling for weeks, and last night he finally did it!  He was playing on the bed and wanted a bottle of baby lotion in the worst way...so he crawled and got it!  He gets about 3 or 4 crawls and then usually face plants...but he definitely is getting the hang of it.

Tonight Danielle had us over for dinner...she made the most delicious stuffed shells!  Grey was a lil fussy since he refused to nap today.  A spoon and ice cube kept him occupied for a good hour.  All the toys he has, and he chooses that to play with!  We left about 7:30 and he was out cold before we got out of the neighborhood!

I was not good at taking pictures today, but here is one of him busy playing!

Happy Friday!

Talk about putting your foot in your mouth...

Could someone pass me the ketchup please?

Mmmmm Mmmmm good!

Mimi is coming:)

 Look at my big boy sitting up in the tub all by himself!  (Pay no attention to where his left hand is).  
Anywho, after a long nap yesterday, Grey was back to his normal, happy self (whew).  He is heading to Miss Kim's today for the first time in a long time.  (Kim is my boss's wife...and I am so lucky to have her take care of grey when I am at work).  It's the next best thing to having family watching him.  We can hardly wait for 4:30 this afternoon...off work and Mimi will be here!  (Mimi is my mom btw).

Happy Hump Day!

Someone is not too happy today.  It's days like this that make me super sympathetic to parents with colicky babies.  Grey is normally such a happy boy...it just breaks my heart when he is fussy.  He is tugging at his ears and constantly grabbing for something to chew (even more obsessive than usual)...so I'm sure its just the joys of teething.  We are trying every toy he owns to keep him happy!  

 Check out Grey's new socks!  My Aunt Kathy is quite the knitter and sent Grey two pair of socks!  They are so soft and aren't as tight around Grey's lil kankles as the ones I usually buy for him!  Thanks so much!  We just love them!

So this is how I feel on Mondays.....

And this is how I wish I felt when my alarm goes off on Monday mornings!
 Yesterday was a really lazy day...just hung out with my boyz.  Both teams I wanted to win yesterday lost:(   As long as the Steelers don't win the Super Bowl, I'll be alright:)

Nothing big planned early this week, but my mom is heading into down Wednesday to spend some time with Grey.  Friday night, Danielle and I are taking her to a Rascal Flats concert in Dayton.  What's better than a day of outlet shopping, dinner with the girls, and a concert with one of our favs????

For now, I'll just work on getting through Monday! 
(thinking of seeing this lil man at 4:30 will help)

Sky and a former West Point classmate Dave

Jill and I (kinda thought it was Cydni Lauper & Debbie Gibson huh???)
Colin & Sky (p.s. Colin went home with a blood-stained shirt and a gash above his eye...he is a great hockey player and therefore thought he was a roller-skating super star...LOL)

Sky just wanted me to "tow" him all night...he wasn't so good on the skates!


We had such a blast at the "SK80's" party!  It was like walking into a time warp...everyone got so into dressing up!  These pictures are classic...I still can't believe I krimped my hair!

Grey was an angel for Greg and Danielle...and he slept til 7:30 for mama!  God love him!  His third tooth popped through...we just noticed it this morning.  It has been close for a week or so, but now she's through.  He now has the two front bottom teeth and one on the top...just to the left of where the front two will be.

Grey just goofing around with his "tag" blanket.  A sweet girl I used to work with bought it for him...Thanks Nila:)

Weekend Fun!!!

Just some random pics of our lil man from Saturday:)
What are you doin???  It's too early for Pictures!

Let's see if I can get this foot in my mouth!

Daddy making me smile...Peek a Boo!

Saturday was a pretty lazy day...as was Friday night.  Sky cooked a delicious dinner...pasta with grilled Chix and his famous homeade garlic bread!  

Saturday Grey woke up a bit early so he has been pretty sleepy!  He is on nap #3 and its only 4pm!  He had apples today and loved them...ate the whole container in no time!    Let's hope he goes to bed a lil late and sleeps in:)   Tonight we are heading to an 80's themed roller skating party:)

 I'm so lucky to have my sister and her man to babysit!  

I cannot remember the last time I was on roller skates...should be interesting!  Wait til I post pics of Sky and my outfits...lets just say we hit up Goodwill this afternoon and scored!

Snow Day!

As the day went on, the temperature got colder and colder and the snow never stopped.  I attempted to meet some work friends for dinner, but the roads were just terrible and traffic was baaaaaaaad!  So instead, I turned around and hung out with my men.  Grey sported a shirt that Uncle Sean & Auntie Aiko bought for him for Christmas...he looks like such a big boy!  He loves to stick his tongue out these days...I just love how you can see his 2 lil teeth!  
Can't wait for the weekend!  80's roller skating party on Saturday night!  
Happy Friday!

Someone figured out how to move forward....

It's crazy how Grey does something new everyday!  He started moving around two days ago just a bit, then yesterday, he was walking backwards and in circles, and today he is walking all over the place!  It's so funny to watch his facial expressions when he runs into something and can't figure out why he can't move anymore! 

So we gave Grey a break from peas (I don't think he missed them at all).  He ate a whole container of sweet potatoes and half a container of bananas...and he wanted more!  God love him and his sweet tooth!

I had a great time at the "purse party" last night...I came home with a pair of True Religion skinny jeans, a Michael Kors bag, and  short black Uggs!  I went with my friend Jill...who I adore.  We had a nice dinner before and both found some great deals at the party!  I wouldn't say I needed any of the items below...but the prices were so great, I just couldn't pass them up!

Almost Friday...Have a Good one!

 So what happens when a 6 month old skips two naps?  
 Yep....he falls asleep sitting up without even finishing his bottle!
I think I jinxed Sky and I...talking about what a good napper Grey was this weekend because he just would not nap on Tuesday until about 3:30 in the afternoon.  Lil man was craaaaanky by then...but how can you get upset when you see that sweet sleeping face?  (knock on wood, but...) We are lucky...no matter how much or little Grey sleeps during the day, he always seems to sleep through the night.

So Grey started baby food with peas and he did pretty good....until, he was given bananas!  Grey is no dummy...below is the face I kept getting when I would try to feed him peas!  

Good thing his mama is clever...2 bites bananas and then a bite or two of peas!  Kept Grey guessing so he ate all his peas!  We are moving on to sweet potatoes tonight and I have a feeling he'll love them.  I think he has a sweet tooth like his mama!  I still don't like peas so how can I blame the lil man!

Tonight Sky and Grey will be having a boys night.  I am going out with my girlfriend Jill to dinner and then a "purse" party of sorts.  A friend is hosting a party and there will be Northface, Uggs, True Religion Jeans, and a bunch of other stuff.  I guess the stuff is super discounted...so as Sky would say..."I'll be saving him money"...lol!

Happy Hump Day!

Random Tuesday

This is the face I get to wake up to....does it get any better?!?!?!?

It's been a very typical week so far with nothing too exciting going on.  We bought Grey a lil walker right before Christmas and his feet didn't reach the ground and now less than a month later, he is able to walk around... he mostly moves backwards, but its still adorable.
Just a few more inches....
And today...walking all over!
No big plans today!  Just working and Sky is cooking dinner tonight.  I am so lucky to have such a great cook for a hubby!  I sooooo love when he does not travel.  

So this spring we are taking Grey on his first vacation to Florida and maybe I was trying on some of his spring hats last night?  And I wonder why sky tells me I treat our son like my barbie doll??
Who, me?????
 Just a lil proof of how close Baby Grey is getting to crawling and thereby getting into everything...he relies on rolling and scooting but it won't be long!

Oh, I wanna put that froggy in my mouth...
Agh...so close....

Forget the frog, I'll just roll over and get this basket
